Eli's Cartoon Caption Contest No. 130

Contest No. 130 starts right now.

Briefly, here are the details: I'll supply a drawing of one of my old cartoons that has never been published, leaving off my caption. You are invited to supply your funniest captions. Simply (1) click on "Add New Comment". Then (2) scroll down past any other submitted captions and type in your name and your caption in the spaces provided. Then (3) click "Save".

Your caption (or captions) will be posted after I review your submission. Also, no captions at all will be posted for the first few days of each contest. This is to give everybody a chance to submit their spontaneous, gut-instinct caption without fear of discovering that it was ripped off by somebody else's similar spontaneous, gut-instinct caption. This is an equal opportunity contest!

There is no limit on the number of captions you may enter for each drawing, but I will only post and consider the first 15 captions from any contestant. Entries will be accepted and posted for one week, after which a winner will be announced and the winning caption will be printed. Below that I will also print my original caption.

The cut-off time and date for you to send in your captions is midnight Tuesday, February 13, 2018.  

I will be the sole judge. The winning caption will be the one I judge to be the funniest one submitted (not necessarily the one that matches or comes closest to my original caption). Additional rules and regulations, for those of you who need such things, can be found here.

Below is the drawing that needs your funny captions.


Prince Michael, I always wanted something better for you!

Remember - the pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon; the vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true.

Don‘t jest with me.

I'm the fake king. and you are the King even though you're a kid.

Do not jest with me, I will see you in court.

It's come to my attention that you have been juggling your time between me and that Santa guy.

Big deal, three balls. Try juggling a 30 pound crown, an itchy fur coat and an evil queen for a wife!

“I knew Yorick. You, sir, are no Yorick.”

"I don't care about you juggling school and a job, I want you to juggle the balls."

"The minstrel ate your homework? Surely you jest?"

"Go study with Percival my boy, your grades are funny enough."

“Surely,you jest!!!” “No,and don’t call me Shirley!!!!”

"Your motivation is I'm your father and I told you to."

I said I wanted chainsaws.

Please stop calling me "nuncle", and if you say "Thou shouldst not have been old till thou hadst been wise" one more time, you're fired.

There will be no more balls thrown before the thrown.

"Let's see what you've got, the balls are in your court."
